Golden Tate’s Epic Push-Off Sets Stage For Fake Touchdown

We know that Golden Tate “caught” the game-winning touchdown pass against the Packers to give Seattle a controversial 14-12 win but what happened during the play was nearly as offensive.

Tate clearly pushed Packers defensive back Sam Shields in attempt to make a play on the ball.

Check out Tate’s handy work in the end zone prior to ripping off the Packers:

1. Here is where Tate first makes contact.

2. Then, Tate extends his arms.

3. Due to Tate’s push, Shields ends up several inches in front of the play. As a result, Tate is in position to make a play on the ball.

I’ll even excuse a no-call there but geez.

When ESPN’s Lisa Salters asked Tate about a push during a post-game interview, his response was hilarious.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Sounds about right.
